There’s no shortage of flashy magazines for teenage girls on newsstands in Canada.

But it’s a different situation in India where Sharanya Haridas struggled to launch a webzine for young women.

That is, until she crossed the ocean to attend Ryerson’s Digital Media Zone. RCI's Lyne-Francoise Pelletier spoke with her.
The DMZ as it is known is Toronto’s Ryerson University business incubator.

It’s a place where entrepreneurs, innovators and researchers can find a rich network of industry contacts and business services.

The digital hub is designed to help and meet the needs of students and industry entrepreneurs so they can accelerate the launch of their product successfully.

For the last three months, Sharanya Haridas has been improving her digital business skills as one of the very first Digital Media Zone international fellows.

During that time, the young Indian entrepreneur has successfully launched That’s So Gloss, a webzine for young women in her homeland.

Lyne-Francoise Pelletier speaks with the founder of That’s So Gloss. Sharanya Haridas shares her publishing experience and how Toronto’s Ryerson University helped make her dream a reality.
